In other words, one calorie on a food label is equivalent to 1000 calories by its technical definition. But, from here out, we will be calling both calories, even though we know that food calories have a different value.

Here is how much energy is contained in one gram of the following substances:

Carbohydrate: 4 calories

Protein: 4 calories

Httpd hosts. Lipid: 9 calories

By calorie amount, nutritionists recommend eating a diet that is 40% carbohydrate, 30% protein, and 30% lipid – keep in mind that 30% lipid means that 30% of your total calories can come from lipids, but because lipids contain more than twice the caloric value protein or lipid, only 13% of your total food by weight should be lipid. So, lipids contain more calories (and more energy) per gram than other protein or carbohydrate.

Before you begin, answer the following questions:

  • Why do nutritionists recommend eating about 30% of your calories as lipids, but only 13% lipids by weight – what’s the difference?
  • Do you think your diet contains more carbohydrate, protein, or lipid by weight than the other organic molecules? Why?
  • Based on calories of carbohydrate, protein and lipid alone, do you think the meal you calculate for McDonalds, Chick-fil-A, or the homemade meal will be the most balanced?

Your task is to calculate the following values for (1) a McDonalds meal, (2) a Chick-fil-A meal, and (3) a homemade meal (using Calorie King):

  1. Grams of Carbohydrate
  2. Calories of Carbohydrate
  3. Grams of Protein
  4. Calories of Protein
  5. Grams of Lipid
  6. Calories of Lipid
  7. Total Calories

After you’re complete, answer the following questions:

  • By calories, what percentage of your diet is carbohydrate, lipid, and protein?
  • Was your prediction that you eat more carbohydrate, protein, or lipid than the other organic molecules accurate?
  • How true was your prediction about which meal – McDonalds, Chick-fil-A, or the homemade meal – was the most balanced?
